Yesterday afternoon (Thursday) I decided to start pulling chickweed out of the flower bed on the south side of the house. I was very pleasantly surprised to see a sign of life next to the old stems of the Phlomis ‘Edward Bowles’. I thought is was completely dead! I bought this plant from an Ebay seller in the spring of 2013 and it quickly became one of my favorite plants. Last year it was super nice but I had it covered with a large flower pot with leaves inside all winter. If it was going to be warm I uncovered it and then covered it back up at night. It didn’t seem to really go completely dormant which I thought was a little strange. This past winter I didn’t cover it at all. That will NOT happen again!
I noticed this cactus that overwinters here had a few buds a few weeks ago. Then yesterday I noticed it ding this. How strange is that?!?!?! I still need to find out it’s name. How many thousands of photos will I have to look at? I guess I better share this photo to a few groups on Facebook. They are good about identifying.
I found a perfect spot for my new Sempervivum Hybrid ‘Killer’. It was screaming to get out of the pot. Now it is happy it can stretch out a bit.
Well, that’t it for this post even though it is a day late… Just think of this as yesterday’s post. Take care, God Bless. Be happy, healthy and prosperous. But most of all, GET DIRTY!!!
